Alexander-Arnold epitomises the modern full back in real life, but does his new POTM card fit the bill?

Physical

The most important physical stats for a right back are stamina and speed – POTM Trent’s 88 stamina and 86 sprint speed will allow you to bomb up the wing with him when attacking and still track back quickly in defence.

His improved aggression rating of 78 will also make him more effective in any tussles with opposition players.

Dribbling

It’s fair to say that Alexander-Arnold is renowned for his ability to advance up the wing before delivering a good cross. Therefore, his POTM stats of 88 ball control and 81 dribbling are reflective of his talents and will allow you to weave between defenders as you advance up the right channel.

Passing

Alexander-Arnold is known for having a wicked cross on him – EA have recognised this and given his POTM card a whopping 96 rated crossing, 90 curve and 90 long passing. Essentially, if it’s on, Trent will find the right ball.

Defending

Ironically, defending is an area that Alexander-Arnold needs to work on in real life if he wants to become the ultimate right back. You won’t have this issue with his POTM card as it possesses 90 rated standing tackle, 86 sliding tackle and 86 interceptions. This POTM card passes this section with flying colours.

Shooting

Alexander-Arnold isn’t isn’t a stranger to scoring goals, recently netting in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Leicester. His POTM card posses 87 shot power, 83 positioning and 72 long shots – so if an opportunity does fall to him, having a pop wouldn’t be the worst idea.

Final Verdict

At an estimated cost of 225k PS4 / 226k Xbox One, Alexander-Arnold’s POTM card is by no means cheap. However, judging by his stats this comes as no surprise.

His combination of attacking and defensive prowess makes for the perfect right back.

You’d be best to avoid shooting and opt to utilise his strong points – this means beating players down the right channel before whipping in a deadly ball due to his brilliant stats.

This POTM card is far cheaper than Trent’s 95 rated TOTY card, so makes for a more economic alternative.
